Three-ply White/Black/White Pickgard

I would buy it again


Very nice guitar for the money, sounds great and is an easy play. Needs a better nut it is throwing off the setup.



Surprisingly good. Great value for the money.


I got this guitar with the intent of using it for practice while on the road, thinking it would be decent but nothing more than that. Instead, I was impressed by how good it sounds, but more importantly but how playable the instrument is right out of the box. The intonation is near perfect, and the action just right, finish and looks are just great (I got the butterscotch). The only downside is the weight, used as I am to the Gibson SG, which is much lighter. However, this has more to do with the fact that this is a Telecaster, not necessarily a light guitar. All in all, a great buy and an excellent value for the money.



The feel is through-and-through Fender


Wanted a sit-around practice guitar, and this perfectly fits the bill. Economically priced, but a lotta bang for the buck. Not perfect intonation or setup on arrival, but a little tweaking got it playing very nicely and sounding good. A fun, responsive, well-made and decent guitar for the money.




Extremely Nice Item!


I realize by now that at my age I will never make it to a rock band so I just play for the fun of it at home. I own two 2017 Les Pauls one Custom and one 2017 Classic and have owned many other LP's since the 70's, But I must admit that this Tele though made in China is a great player and looking guitar, I am truly shocked, Sam Ash said it was used like new but it has absolutely no signs of use, not a mark! I would definitely buy from again! Thanks

love these sguires


i think the sguire guitars are a great value , they play nice and look good . this guitar is a great starting point for a beginner without breaking the bank . i am very glad to own this guitar and would buy sguire again . i also own a sguier hot rails strat which i love also . they are guitars i myself can grow into and one day make that purchase of an american fender strat . i would recommend the sguire line of guitars to anyone who like this style of guitar . thanks sam ash for your great service , low prices , and huge inventory .




I definitely recommend.


I bought this guitar because I wanted to start playing again and I wanted something affordable. I've always trusted Fender quality and that still holds true and you can't beat the Telecaster look.

Butterscotch Tele is the bomb.


I bought a Fender Squier Tele from Sam Ash, and it is a bargain! The frets needed a bit of finishing, then I tuned it up, and off to the races. Very nice, looks and sounds great. Maple neck like butta, yo. Thanks!

Questionable, but expected


I purchased a guitar that was listed at discounted, but the only photo posted was a stock image. Obviously, I had an idea of what I was getting myself into. The item arrived with some pretty severe damage, but it did not effect that usability of the instrument. It would have been nice to know beforehand though. Still love my purchase!

Excellent value in a Telecaster


No lie, this guitar is a really great value in its price point. Shipping is almost instantaneous. The guitar arrived FedEx (thank God! - UPS is an insurance fraud) packaged as good as possible with cardboard and Styrofoam. The guitar is set up and intonated very well and it is very playable right out of the box after the strings settle in. (It's shipped strung but not tuned to pitch). I'm an acoustic player so it took a while to adjust my attitude to the guitar: left hand doesn't need to be a vice grip and the pick needs to be a LOT more supple (.5 or thinner). I'm finding that the tuners are a bit sloppy and might replace those. They'll do for now. Very impressive guitar for the money. It sounds exactly like a Telecaster: it's unforgiving, the bridge pickup slices like a laser and Ghost Riders in the Sky sounds exactly like it should. (I got the 2-tone sunburst). Highly recommended.
